Great concept, but fails to work most of the time. The scanner is pretty poor, and only works with isolated words. If it's in a sentence, good luck with trying to figure it out!

Great app! Nothing else like it. I used to speak Teochew when I was young, but I've forgotten a lot of it now. This app is useful for me to look over the meanings of words and phrases again. Makes my grandmother happy! :)
